Well there was a reason they didnt show GM products as much as Ford and chrystler....Because we have nothing! The only thing worth Glancing at was the new corvette, and gto. o and the solstice......mabye. Look what ford has; an award winning line of f-150's, the gt40, mustang, shelby. And chrystler has the new crossfire and soon that ME 412 Concept that would KILL a vette in seconds.(yes some of this is the other car show but..)

The heart of the ME Four-Twelve is its all-aluminum, quad-turbo, 6.0-liter V-12 engine. With electronic sequential multipoint fuel injection and a 9.0:1 compression ratio, the ME Four-Twelve's AMG-developed engine delivers 850 bhp @ 5750 rpm, with 850 lb-ft. (1150 N-m) of torque between 2500 and 4500 rpm on premium unleaded fuel. The specific power output translates to 142 bhp/liter, and with a curb weight of just 2880 lbs. (1310 kg), the ME Four-Twelve has the weight-to-power ratio of 3.4 lbs/bhp - each of these sets new performance records and new benchmarks in the super car category.

And, befitting a machine that will play comfortably in the super car league, the performance of the ME Four-Twelve is stunning. In our projections and modeling, the ME Four-Twelve goes from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 6.2 seconds and it will blister through the quarter mile in 10.6 seconds at 142.0 mph. The estimated top speed of the ME Four-Twelve is 248 mph (400 km/h). The vehicle is designed and packaged to achieve outstanding thermal performance under extreme operating conditions. Its large capacity, high-efficiency engine-cooling system allows this engine to retain optimum thermal performance - a key advantage in the super car arena.

The 7-speed Ricardo Double Clutch Transmission was developed specifically for this vehicle and features the latest double wet-clutch technology and electronic control strategy. The exclusive ME Four-Twelve transmission delivers uninterrupted torque to the rear wheels with 200 millisecond shift times.

And the Gt40 would also leave a brand new vette in peices. See we have no exotics or super fast performance cars or anything worth comparing. I mean Motor trend compared the subaru impreza with the mustang(mustang lost woo hoo :lol: ) but with no camaro or chevelle (yet) we got no new material. The gto was cool for about a couple months and then it was an eye sore. And the xlr still is only 320 hp. not the 600 you see from ferrari or porsche. You see thats why. :brick:

I didnt mean nothing as NOTHING i meant as super car wise......there is no high performance car in the GM line-up. Except the corvette. we should try to spring for the ferrari, viper, gt40 area and not the sedan, small car area because we have enough kickass cars (solstice, cobalt, Aveo [kinda] nomad, curve mabye ssr every saab monte impala etc. you know wheer im getting. gm should start to produce high performance cars again like in the 60's and 70's, bring the chevelle and camaro back, and make a 500+ hp Xlr or some super saab or an oldsmobile 442 with like 600hp before they stop making them. That would be cool. Thats what a meant.
